Tuesday News Day

Spec Martin Memorial Stadium, home of Stetson football 
As reported on BGA Premium and in today's Valley News, Dartmouth coach Buddy Teevens expects the Big Green's game at Stetson Saturday to be played as scheduled. Not so for some schools in Florida:

From Football Scoop:
Saturday’s Georgia Tech-Central Florida game scheduled for Orlando has been called off. Additionally, Florida State’s home game with Miami has already been pushed back to Oct. 7, and Florida’s home date with Tennessee may be moved out of Gainesville.
Indiana’s home game against Florida International has been canceled. The Hooisers will effort to schedule a home game for their bye week on Oct. 7.

Here's how Massey sees Saturday's Ivy League games:

Dartmouth 33, Stetson 7
Bryant 31, Brown 28
Columbia 21, Wagner 20
Delaware 31, Cornell 14
Rhode Island 28, Harvard 26
Penn 28, Ohio Dominican 21
Princeton 28, San Diego 20
Lehigh 42, Yale 28

A few questions. When was the last time Columbia was favored and Harvard was not?

Bryant, which struggled to beat DII Merrimack, 49-41, and lost to Maine, 60-12, favored against Brown, at Brown?

What does it say if Penn does have a close one against Ohio Dominican, which is 0-2 with losses to Ashland and California of Pennsylvania?
